Title: 
Beyond the Standard Model (or not) after the Higgs
Abstract: 
To date, the LHC has not observed indications of structure beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Moreover the measured properties of the Brout-Englert-Higgs boson hint at an underlying simplicity of the model without such new physics. This has led to a re-evaluation of the hierarchy problem on which much of our faith in Beyond the Standard Model physics rests. In this talk I will review these issues and compare “Just the Standard Model” with models that incorporate a more complete unification of the fundamental forces.
